Last week I went through Williams , Ca. on my way to go scouting. Ironically, I was listening to promos' jim horn on a cd regarding calling. I had all my calls with me. About 15 miles outside of Williams I saw a herd of elk. I thought---cool!! I stopped and thought I would call to them. There was approx 20 head. There was a herd bull and I saw a satallite bull. I made bugels and they responded asap. I then made cow calls and the bulls would respond. This is more verbalization than I hear in Idaho in mid-sept. This was approx August 3rd. They completly acted like they were in the rut. Do calif elk go into the rut early????
